French Paperback Book: Julie ou la Nouvelle Heloise


This is an absolutely gorgeous French paperback book. I couldn’t find a publishing date but it looks similar to the others so I would guess the 1920’s. What makes this book so special is its deckled edge.

Deckle Edge books are those that have unevenly cut pages.  Centuries ago, it used to be that paper sheets were made individually on a deckle.  When the papery slurry {wet paper pulp} was spread out, some would seep under the screen and create a rough edge to the paper.  Modern machines now create perfectly cut edges, but books with a Deckle Edge are now seen as higher quality and thus, have a higher price.
